Sorry I've missed a lot of info, wasn't sure exactly what was relevant.

I'm on Centos 5.x with Postfix 2.3.3 and 4.68.8.

Oddly enough upgrading MailScanner to the latest release (it was on
4.67.9 I think) would appear to have fixed whatever was happening.

DKIM still isn't working but that's down to some issues getting the DNS
record in place properly.

Another relevant question is ... what version of MS is in use here?If
too old, there's only falkey PF milter support, or even none at all...
